    An Interview with 2012 ABA Bird of the Year Artist Andrew Guttenberg

      

    I sat down with Andrew Guttenberg in the living room of his parent's home in Bozeman, Montana, to talk about his career as a birder and artist, his two cover paintings for Birding magazine, and of course, Common Nighthawks. I think you'll enjoy meeting this prodigiously talented young man.

    Jeff Gordon is the president of the American Birding Association. There's very little about birds, birding, and birders that he doesn't find fascinating, though he's especially interested in birding culture and the many ways we all communicate our passion for birds, including this Blog.

      Thanks Jeff!
